Hi Leo, I am sending you this email on behalf of all the customers at my local pub. We are in The Gun Newbury Berks England, I know you were once local to the area. Well our Landlord Clive , is a huge fan of yours , and he is turning 70yrs old in June . Whenever we talk music your name comes up and Clive rabbits on forever naming all your songs. He reminisces about the time he saw you in concert which was his 40th birthday present from his wife. He says its the best present he ever had. Well I could go on and on about the things he says about you . Anyway we were wondering if it were possible for you to send a personally signed photo, with a birthday message on it or a poster or anything really, to him for his 70th. He is having a huge all-day party that day, with over a hundred and fifty family and friends . We know it would make his day and possibly his life to get a personal message from you. If you are able to send something please could you send it to the following address , so that we can give it to him on the day. Thanking you in anticipation , Kind Regards Teresa Stratton

Hi Bab, Hope you are well, saw your latest pics on instagram today, your looking gorgoeus. I have given myself a new look, and upgraded my cowboy boots to snakeskin to match my favourite brown leather jacket you gave me in the 1981 after your Bognor Regis concert at the Old Tootie Bar. Off down the Zoo later to see my old mate Sidney Slitherbottom and Lenny Lizard, will say hello for you as they really miss you. Well better go as my Mums got my tea on the table, cornbeef hash again……. tatta bab
hi ya buster. Just go back from notcutts and met up with Vince he told me to pop round his house to pick up the parcel you left for me. I went round and cant believe you finally bought me that 1970s light brown leather jacket. I will never take it off my darling snuggly bear and I will make sure I have it on the next time me and tarquin pop down for a visit.
Anyway next time your up my way make sure you pop in for a natter.
Lots of love
Angelo and I would like to extend our thanks for attending our wedding. The musical set you put on was as beautiful as my lovely Angelo. We would have got in touch sooner, but our honeymoon in Mikanos was amazing, even if Angelo did make me be the bride all week.
We are attending your show in Australia at the end of the month, Angelo has a bit of spare change and thought it would be a nice treat to come to Australia for a few days. We have enjoyed checking out the guys on Bondi Beach the most.
Anyway see you at the end of the month, we will send you some flowers and a pasty.
Love Jude and Angelo xoxoxoxox
Long time no see, Angelo and I would like to thank you for coming to our wedding and playing a set for us the other month. Sorry we haven’t been in touch sooner but we had a wild honeymoon in Mikanos. Angelo was insistant on me being the bride for the honeymoon which was a tad annoying but oh well.
We are hoping to come to your show in Australia at the end of the month, maybe we could get some backstage passes? If not we will organise an after show party loaded with frat bros mmmmmmm.
See you soon
Jude & Angelo xxx
Hi Leo, I just called to say I loveeee you, oh hang on a second thats someone else’s song isnt it?. Just a brief message really to tell you how much I love your music, I always listen to your CD’s whilst I am pumping iron in my garage. I dont have enough money to buy proper weights so i use a bar I found at the tip and some old paint tins, not the best but it does the job (trying to get rid of my pidgeon chest see).
All the best HHH x
Hi Leo, you’re in my upcoming autobiography coz my GF back in North Wales in 1979 and I used to sing your songs to one another (whilst ’spooning’ shall we say). Sheena Eaton too. I’m in Melbourne now and you’re in Sydney right? A piccie having a coffee or chat with you would be the icing on the cake for my publisher & readers. I’ll keep an eye out for when you’re next in Melbourne. BTWIi first mentioned you in Bernard Newman & Ken Wilson’s ‘Extreme Rock’ – the Tremadog chapter, back in the early ’80s so I’m 100%. Cheers for the great toons.
Hi Leo it’s Wayne from Melbourne Oz. Keen to see you do all the local pubs doing all your greatest hits
Hi Leo,hurry up and re release ‘can’t stop loving you’ it’s being used on a Sky Sports ad in the UK and everyone is suddenly asking about it .Imagine finding a whole new generation to appreciate this and other LS classics .kind regards Barry
Happy Easter to you, hope life is treating you well, have you thought about doing a dvd version of your songs? still looking for your tour dates for England, dont forget your fans here. xx
I heard you on the wireless the other day. It reminded me of when I was on tour in Afghanistan with the lads. Me and the boys used to love driving in the tank down a dusty highway with the sound of your voice blasting and a few Afghan chicks in the back. Those were the days!
Anyway enough of me talking, fancy meeting up and going for a teaoffee some time?
hi ya me duck just wondering if your free next weds to go touring in my camper van. I would love to meet up and share a baileys with you in the back of the van.
Love and Kwishes.
Hi Leo, How are you?
I saw John at the Stilt supply shop last week, he was asking after you as he says he owes you a meat pie and glass of Sherry??
Anyway, just thought I would drop you a line as I am feeling a bit short at the mo and need a pick up. I looked out you last album and put it on the mp3 player, oh was bliss and the thought being down went away as soon as I heard your fab voice.
Keep up the good work mate and hopefully see you soon
All the Best Dan xxx
When you are next playing in the UK.
I am fed up with all this modern music, its awful just want to hear your lovely voice again.
When will you be writing some new Tunes?
I have a suggestion, if I may…. when My boyfriend Remondo calls me we always get into the silly game where we find it hard to say I love you, So I say, “you say it” then he says back to me “No you say it” and so on until one of us gives up. I think it would make a lovely song and would love to hear it live.
But anyway less of my babble I need to go and feed Alfonso and renato, my pigeons as its feeding time for them. Then I am going to cook Remondo a Nice Pork chop supper and and we are going to sit and cuddle while your tunes play in the background.. Love ya bab
hi ya buster just wondering how the devil you are. Just got back from Minehead with my life partner Trevor. We both went down for a Talcumn powder convention. I was wondering when are you coming to visit us again, do you remember that wild night in the Malt shovel with Barry and Vince and doreen. It was a night to remember. Anyway got to go my love Deal or no deal is on.
I know you must be very busy right now, and good luck with your tour, have you made any arrangements for touring around here in England yet? if so can you give us a clue? have fun.
Hello Leo, Chris here, saw Ron Slither up the reptile shop last week, he said could you give him a call as he would like his tyre leaver back if you still have it. Anyway banged a few of your tunes on at the weekend ,was great driving along in my Reliant furry dice swinging to the sound of your wonderful voice, tell you what mate you have the X factor time s 10, wonderful bloke. Anyway less of my gushing got to go and feed the frogs and gerbil. Please dont walk away bab
all the best Cwiss
Hi Leo, Me again nice to hear you again on the stereo, your tunes make me so happy, if I were a dog I would wag my tail with glee. I feel like you have been my Chum for years and would give you a treat if I ever got to go for a run with you. Well must get back to my grooming, the show must go on.
Hi ya love.
Was that really you I seen in Blockbusters last week hiring out the best of the Bill box set. I was going to come up and say hello but I was overcome with emotion. I cant wait to meet me in dudley next month for the big reunion tour. Morris and Tosh send there best. Also I dont suppose you know the name of that butchers in stoke that sold us them giant pork chops as I break out in a cold sweat everytime i think about them. Anyway my love I have to go as the chase is on. TTFN.
I´m feeling sad and lonely these days and I can´t help thinking of you. There´s nothing else I can do when this crushing desire comes out of the blue trying to drag me towards you like a loadstone.
I have followed your music for many years, my auntie used to play many of your tunes when i was a bonnie we lass in the 70’s. My favourite tune of yours is ‘I am the walrus’ as my friends used to call me Walrus at school due to my protruding front teeth. Well I have under gone the operations and I am now a very happy man, its took many years but I feel you were with me all the way. Your song ‘Don’t wait until tomorrow’ sums up my journey and I am so glad i could at least hear during these times.
Tarra Leo, love you forever.
We are all Missing you at Blacktown Workers and can’t wait until you come back. Please let me know when you are available !!!

Hi leo, I am a new friend of you
I am enquiring on getting you to attend my Fundraising Event in Townsville at the end of November early December.
If You could please contact me on 0405677454 or email.
I would to see you playing live and wonder if you have any plans to come to Dublin when you are in Europe.
I was first introduced to your music in the 70’s,the first song I ever heard was ‘just a boy’.I was 16 and hooked,I lived,breathed,your songs.Your music helped me with teenage love,breaking up,making up etc.I was lucky enough to see you perform in Sydney in the late 70’s.I have all your records and cd’s
I was so excited to read about your tour, I booked for Sydney straight away and am counting down the days.Im hoping you guys will have time to meet and greet fans after the show,to have my plc taken with you would be a dream come true.
We live in a small town called Narrabri north west N.S.W.lf I had a request it would be ‘When I Need You’ You have no idea how excited I am.
Best Wishes from Kaz,( a fan for for over 30yrs)
Hi Leo, my husband has just discovered your music and you were all that we pretty much listened to on our holiday to Italy, which was great. So it got me thinking I am planning his 40th birthday for November and wonder if your interested in performing at it, if so please email me.
Just been watching you from way back in the seventies, its a shame you have not made a dvd version of your songs, as I forgot how good Orchard Road was when your in the phone box singing, your voice has not changed at all, so talented, you could put together a seventies and a now version, I bet your true fans out there would go wild and buy it, please give it some thought. ta xx
